Pay Raises In Rural Sheridan County

Ranchester, Wy – Trustees in a rural Sheridan County school
district have raised base pay for teachers and administrators by
12-hundred-50 dollars a year, and for non-faculty staff by 25 cents
an hour.
Sheridan County School District Number-One serves about 900
students from Big Horn, Dayton, Ranchester and Parkman.
Last night's (Monday's) vote brings base pay for certified staff
to 30-thousand-dollars a year, a recommendation of Superintendent
Sue Belish.
Trustees also approved Belish's recommendation for a one-time
bonus of about 12-hundred-dollars for full-time teachers and
non-faculty staff, with a pro-rated bonus for other staffers based
on years served.
In addition, the school board approved increases in health
benefits.
